QuarkXPress 9 is built to help designers create content that can be published to digital devices with one tool and without coding. Key features include:
Export to ePUB - QuarkXPress 9 includes an easy option for exporting to ePUB, the free and open e-book standard developed by the International Digital Publishing Forum. Designers can create traditional text-based e-books and publish to e-bookstores such as Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble NOOK, and Amazon Kindle.
Design for the Blio eReader - QuarkXPress 9 is the only page layout software with direct support for the Blio eReader, a free, multi-platform, multi-device application that presents eBooks just like the printed versions. With Quark, designers can enhance eBooks with interactive elements and a Read Logic feature that separates the print experience from the digital experience.
Publishing to the iPad - App Studio for QuarkXPress (available soon in a free update) will give designers a dedicated design environment within QuarkXPress 9 for creating iPad content. They will be able to create customised apps for the iPad, distribute their apps through the Apple® App Store and publish interactive content to the app.
Design-driven Automation - In addition to its innovative digital publishing capabilities, QuarkXPress 9 includes new features that help automate the design process. The features are instrumental in increasing productivity and alleviating many manual, time-consuming design tasks.
